Nvidia unveiled the new GeForce RTX 3090 Ti at the CES 2022 exhibition. It has 10752 stream processors with a base clock of 1560 MHz and a boost clock of 1860 MHz, equipped with 24GB of GDDR6X video memory, the speed reaches 21 Gbps, and the 384-bit video memory bandwidth, the theoretical video memory bandwidth exceeds 1 TB/s, which will be the first time in the history of GeForce graphics cards to cross the 1 TB/s bandwidth.
However, it has been reported recently that the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, which was originally planned to be released on January 27, has been postponed, and Nvidia has asked its partners to suspend the production of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, possibly due to BIOS or hardware problems. Although it can’t be released as scheduled, VideoCardz said that retailers in Europe have already listed entries for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, showing a starting price of 3,129 euros.
In comparison, the GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card from the same retailer is 2390 euros, and the cheapest GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is also 30% higher, and some high-end non-public versions are more expensive.
The GeForce RTX 3050 desktop version, which also appeared at the CES 2022 exhibition, will be released as planned on January 27. It is rumored that Nvidia will increase the supply of GeForce RTX 3050. GeForce RTX 3050 uses GA106, has 2560 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 video memory, 128-bit video memory bit width, 14Gbps video memory rate, and TDP is 130W.
According to reports, the GeForce RTX 3050 has been sold on Amazon Japan, with a price of 50,138 yen, which is much higher than Nvidia’s official suggested retail price of $249. Even at a serious premium, this GeForce RTX 3050 sold out within hours. From a global perspective, the price of graphics cards in Japan is generally high, but it is not easy to buy new graphics cards at a lower price.
